Cooping

Cooping is an integral part of the school life at VBCC. Parents’ cooping helps to support the teachers in the classrooms during the school day. The coop program provides a practical way for parents to be involved in their child’s growth and development.

Parents are an important part of VBCC. We provide Parent Helper Training Workshops, which all new parents are strongly encouraged to attend. These workshops are beneficial to all parents, and offered in the fall.

Each family is expected to work a set number of days each year according to how many days your child(ren) attends VBCC.

BABY OPTION
Families with infants 9 months or younger at home can choose our “Baby Option”. These families are not required to coop, but will pay a monthly fee that will reflect their total number of cooperative days.
